Alright, my last review was of another Foothills product. The newest IPA of the month. In retrospect it was maybe better than I gave it credit for. My lower rating stem from a purely economic perspective. It was a solid beer. Case in point this beer.

It is a good IPA, not outstanding, but one you can drink frequently at a reasonable price. A local grocery store had it on sale last week for $7.99 a six pack. Now we are talking! In perspective I paid a buck less for the bomber of June IPA of the month, which by the way had less alcohol and I understand that often that is a driving force in price, although I do not know why. Nevertheless on to the review.

Appearance: Tawny golden amber, a good bit of head when poured fairly easily that stayed and stayed.

Smell: Nice aromatic grapefruit, some malt sweetness, but not too much, floral, overall well balanced in the aroma.

Taste: At first you get balance you detect in the smell, then as it passes over your back palate and you are hit with a bitterness from the hops that tend to linger. I drank a more potent DIPA right after this and did not get the lingering bitterness, almost like an arosol hairspray bitterness. Its good and bad in that respect. But its a balanced IPA overall. I do wish I could figure out the lingering grapefruit rind bitterness issue. Overall I do like this beer and its easily obtained and often on sale around here. It is one of Foothills better beers. Honestly I think they do IPA's well. Jade is amazing. I don't get the craze over Sexual Chocolate, but I have already addressed that.

Overall: Well worth seeking out, and even at $10 a sixer its a good deal and a great beer.

I really enjoy this beer, though this is the first time I've had it in a while. It's well-hopped, but not overwhelmingly so. There are few IPAs that I would be excited to have with dinner; this would be one of them.

Out of the bottle, this made a good head with a dark honey body below it. Good spicy aroma as well.

Some might say this isn't anything special; I wouldn't disagree, but I would favor the term well-balanced.
